Tater Tuesday - Vegetarian this week on 03/29/2011 10:28:45 MDT Print View

I missed Tater Tuesday last week because the kidling had a bad ear infection, then I got sick... The fun never stops! But I'm back.

I forgot to take a photo this week! Doh!


Did you know... Potatoes form a complete protein when eaten with meat, dairy or grains.

Black Bean Enchilada Mashed Potatoes
Serves 1

1/2 cup butter flavor instant mashed potatoes
1/4 cup dried refried black beans
2 tablespoons tomato powder
1 tablespoon powdered enchilada seasoning mix
1 teaspoon onion flakes
1 cheddar or pepper Jack cheese stick

At home: combine everything except the cheese in a zip locking freezer bag.

In camp: add about 1 1/4 cups water to the mix. Stir well. Serve topped with the cheese.

I wondered what happened to last Tuesday. I thought maybe I was in a time warp. I also even considered trying to come up with something myself, but I was in Whoville at the foot of Lichtenberg Mtn(I'm married to the Grinch) and didn't have access to much until I came back to town.

I had everything for today's black bean enchilada taters except the enchilada sauce mix, so I went online and combined a few recipes that seemed to work: 1/2 C cornstarch, 1/4 C chili powder, 2 ts garlic salt, 1/2 ts cumin, 1 ts oregano, 1 TB paprika, 1 ts salt. I also rehydrated the beans and onion flakes separately, because the potatoes always hog all the water. This is really good!

Tater!

Keeping it simple -- just dehydrated 7 pounds of yams into yam chips.
I used the recipe on backpackingchef. I should be set for a while.

Kathleen,

I have been blogging my set of recipes but I didn't have time last week to get it posted here :-( I need to go cut n' paste this weeks as well. Ah well.

Tater testing on 03/29/2011 21:14:35 MDT Print View

Sarah - your recipes are next on my test list. I can only eat so many spuds in a day. I may have already tried them in the past, but I need to make them again to be sure. And yes, I don't like to comment on recipes until I've actually made them. I'm a good little eater!

Me either. I'll likely just use the seasoning only.

tomato powder on 03/30/2011 09:30:16 MDT Print View

One thing we do is make our own tomato powder. Dry homemade or jarred tomato sauce until it is very dry (almost brittle) then run it through a coffee grinder or blender. I use a coffee grinder just for things like this. A Magic Bullet works well for this too. You can do the same with V8 juice to add a nice veggie flavor.

more on tomato powder on 03/30/2011 09:56:43 MDT Print View

The stuff I use is from the bulk bins in the herb and spices section from my local health food store (mostly b/c I can buy it locally). I also like Harmony House Foods tomato powder. And like Laurie said, you can also make your own.
